"I came across this recipe (I don't know where it is from) loose in a cookbook and decided to make it this Sunday for our afternoon appetizer. It is easy and so tasty. Watch your timing when frying the bread & cheese. The bread should be nicely browned, the cheese golden and the lemon slices just beginning to wilt. If you wish do this on your BBQ with a solid surface"
